Track Race: A New 5000m World Record Attempt

I'd better get training because I've been invited to join another Toronto joggler for head-to-head track race in August to try to break the 5000m joggling record. I'll make the official announcement once things are finalized, but it should be an exciting matchup. We're going to have non-joggler pacers on hand to rabbit us under Kirk Swenson's record of 16:55, which was set way back in 1986.

I've joggled of couple of 5Ks on the road – recently the Father's Day Run in Toronto – but this one will be a serious attempt to break the record on the track. Joggling adds about 10 per cent to your running time, which means I'd have to get in about 15:20 shape for the 5000.

Who's the other joggler?

Hey, that would be me, Simon. I have a 'video preview' which sums my attempt up pretty well:

Two of us will be even better and will probably help to raise more money for WWF Canada!

Michal,

I have learned to Joggle with some basic Bean Bag Stress Balls. They are about 2 1/4 inch in diameter and seem too small. It feels like my hands are having to open and close too much. They probably weigh about 6 to 8 ounces. Any hints on what size and weight of Sport Juggling Co. balls that you use??? Or what might work best for a beginning joggler. I learned to juggle many years ago and have run for many years if that helps any. Thanks.

Hey tigerpaw,
I'd go fairly big for beginning. I have a custom set of 2 3/8 that are about 90 grams, but these would bad for learning how to joggle. I only go light to save my arms and run faster for marathons. So I go with 2 5/8 or 2 3/4 and get them slightly underfilled so it's easier to grab them. The 3-inch are probably too big - you'll end up with collisions in a low joggling pattern.
YOu definitely down want to be opening and closing your grip because your arms will tire out. Just run with your palm facing up, crable each catch at the base of your fingers, hold the ball as your arm swings back, then release as it swings forward. The ball should be floating fairly close to your nose (and even closer if you have a big nose like I do).
Have fun!

To counter this clearly life threatening dilemma, those in the company of creating cash, even in the expense of kids or these with a physical handicap, grasped the mettle and came up using the concept of insoles that might increase the height, these insoles have grown to be recognized as shoe lifts as they give exactly the same results as women's high heel shoes, lifting the heel and adding a certain amount of height

We just accept that our feet are part of our daily lives and we tend to take them for granted. But if it's just the unsightly things with our feet that we get embarrassed about, [url=http://upnikeaustralia01.webs.com/]Cheap Nike Shoes[/url] why is it that both men and women wear footwear, that are obviously to narrow and can end up leaving us virtually crippled. I guess [url=http://topsniketrainersuk.webs.com/]Nike UK[/url] the main reason is because of the style and fashion that we want to keep up with and the image that we want to convey. Lets face it, we do spend most of our working lives abusing our feet don't we, but most of the time, that's because society is [url=http://upnikeaustralia01.webs.com/]Cheap Nike Shoes[/url] a trend that most of us want to keep up with and if it means stiletto high hill shoes are what gets the men's attention, then so be it.
A sports shoes should allow active engagement in the sport with its supporting resilient features. This is what Nike air flight one qs shoes is all about. The shoe has been designed with extra features that allow the sports men and women boost their performance . In order too appreciate the nike air flight one qs shoes one should have a tour around the footwear to just know why it is a number one choice for those in the sporting world.
Our decision? [url=http://cheapnikenz-sales.webs.com/]Nike Shoes NZ[/url] Ditch them! Buy from another company that will respect us more as a customer. We're definitely not their biggest client, but like all customers, we'd like to think we're special!Imagine if you were that company, and you find that sales are decreasing and customers are no longer coming back. And you do not know why -- that the reason lies in the poor way your business is doing fulfillment and billing.
Here's the important part here. Just let your imagination run wild. Mix and Match bright colors. Dress in plain whites and [url=http://topsniketrainersuk.webs.com/]Nike Blazers Women[/url] [url=http://cheapnikenz-sales.webs.com/]Nike Shoes NZ[/url] blacks for the shirts, pants and occasionally the skirts. Remember that gypsies were very poor and that bright fabrics were very expensive - certainly not like today. So most of what they wore were plain splashed with bright colors. Large bangles and earrings will fill out the outfit. Again, use your imagination.
Ryan introduced the judges on Wednesday evening show and for a minute, I thought that Randy was dressed like a grown-up this week I saw the POLKA DOTS on his suit sleeve. Maybe they on the lining of the jacket and he has the sleeves rolled up? Thanks Randy; now I going to focus on that all night instead of the singing. Where pray tell would you go to buy a men sport jacket with polka dots on the sleeve?

For example, when user is writing a text to someone, but suddenly they
decide that they wish to talk instead. Note 2 adopts the same cover material of Samsung
galaxy s3
to make its rear cover, hence strengthening fashionable aesthetic feelings, but devoid of flexibility that Note has.

On the other hand, Galaxy Note comes with three
color choices – Black, White and Pink.

Unfortunately these more compact designs have come at a great cost and have become far more susceptible
to any kind of a liquid spillage. If you are a
brand conscious person and wants to buy that laptop that reflects status and class,
then going for apple brand is the best option. ll need to go to a short URL on the Mac to download the desktop
part of the installer, which means the Mac and i - Pad must be on
a single Wi-Fi network.
